Senior Citizens

Tom Abinanti is a leader in helping senior citizens. He doesn’t just talk about it. He does it.

EPIC

Assemblyman Abinanti supported a provision that was included in the State budget to provide $4.1 million to expand eligibility for the Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage (EPIC) program and $5 million for community services for the elderly.

Lowering Property Taxes for Seniors

At then-County Legislator Tom Abinanti’s urging, the income eligibility standards were broadened so more seniors could benefit by a tax exemption from County property taxes. If you are over 65 years of age, a resident of Westchester County, and your income is less than $27,900.00 (excluding Veteran’s and Disability Compensation), call your tax assessor for information.
